Craftsman Air Compressor & Brad Nailer

Compressor and brad nailer

Where Purchased:

Sears

Price Paid:

$220

Why Purchased:

A hammer is fine for building a deck, but isn't great when doing fine woodworking. A compressor and nail gun is fast, easy, and it even sets the nail below the surface of the wood for you.

Impressions:

This is a fine compressor and nail gun. The compressor is noisy when it runs, but probably no worse than other compressors. The brad nailer doesn't require oil.

From the picture, this looks identical to the Porter Cable brad nailer/compressor combo pack that I see advertised on Amazon.com, but I can't be sure that it is.
